More often than not, the air ducts in our Alabama homes are one of the most neglected areas in our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
Out of sight, out of mind. Hidden behind the walls and ceilings of your Decatur home, air ducts, or ductwork, play a vital role in your indoor air quality (IAQ) by circulating conditioned air from your air conditioner (AC), furnace, and heat pump. In many ways, air ducts are the lungs of a home.
Neglected ductwork can circulate dust, bacteria, mold, and dirt along with the heated and cooled air throughout your home. Improperly installed or sealed air ducts force your HVAC system to work harder and that may cost you more money in energy bills.
At Skyward Heating, Air & Plumbing, our team takes your indoor air quality very seriously, which means doing our best to maintain your air ducts. These ducts deliver the air you breathe every day in your home.
We understand every facet of ductwork, from installation and sealing to testing and repair. Over the years, we have built a solid reputation for our quality duct cleaning service.
We use some of the most powerful duct cleaning trucks and vacuums in the Decatur area, as well as other specialized tools in the industry. Our tools eliminate any particles that build up in your ductwork, inside register grilles and return air vents, on the blower and evaporator coil, even on the heat exchanger when it is necessary for us to clean it.
Let Skyward Heating, Air & Plumbing rid your ductwork of pollutants that can trigger allergies, asthma, and other chronic health issues. Think of a thorough duct cleaning as an investment in your health.
One way dust and debris enter your Alabama home’s ductwork is through cracks and holes in the system. Heated and cooled air can leak out of your air ducts using that same route. If neglected, those unsealed connections and holes will compromise air quality in your home and cause energy loss that can translate into higher utility bills.
Our experts at Skyward Heating, Air & Plumbing can pinpoint leaks with special equipment that pressurizes your ductwork and calculates air loss. Through our testing, we also can point out air leakage in other areas of your home, such as leaks coming from your windows and doors.
Testing helps determine if sealing and repair are the best approach or if duct replacement is a better solution. Either way, our experts will provide a detailed work plan with an accurate cost estimate, so you understand the process every step of the way.
Air Duct Installation and Replacement
Whether you are remodeling your historic home or planning to add an addition to your Decatur home and need to extend your air ducts, you can trust our knowledgeable professionals at Skyward Heating, Air & Plumbing to get the job done right.
We know how to avoid the long runs and sharp bends in your ductwork that could restrict the airflow. Our team will accurately measure the number of vents necessary to get the best performance from your system. We work with all types of ductwork, and our licensed specialists only use industry-approved tools and equipment.
Here are a few signs it might be time to replace your air ducts:
- Age—Reliable and well-maintained air ducts operate at optimal efficiency between 15 and 20 years. After that, leaks, tears, and loose joints allow air to escape and contaminants to infiltrate your system.
- Noises—Rattling noises in your air ducts usually indicate a loose part or tear. Those noises are a warning sign your ductwork needs service.
- Energy bills—If you notice your energy bills continuously increasing, replacing your faulty air ducts could make a significant difference.
- Temperature issues—If you notice hot and cold spots throughout different parts of your Decatur home, it could mean there’s an issue with your airflow.
Always keep in mind we offer financing to help when it comes time to replace your air ducts. When working with us, we want to make things as easy as possible for you. Talk to one of our team members for more information.
